The 2009 summer edition of the annual Kiwi Sculpture Garden Project marks the 8th anniversary of the Perth based site-specific sculpture project.
For the past six years artists have been invited by Edward Day Gallery owner, Mary Sue Rankin to create sculptural installations with the assistance and support of Paul Anita, owner of Kiwi Gardens.
Kiwi Gardens is imbedded in the heart of the Canadian shield. A working business, marketing perennial foliage and landscaping, it also contains acres of cultivated and undisturbed areas, wood lots, copses, and streams.
The ongoing theme expressed by the artists for the 2009 Kiwi Project relates specifically to the natural environment within which they are created, but also speak to global concerns of the alteration of the earth’s natural condition.
